Ten Post-Listening Activities

Ten Post-Listening Activities
In this final installment of this series of articles, I’m going to share ten different activities that you can use in the post-listening stage. In this stage, students have done a pre-listening activity, participated in a few while-listening tasks, and they are ready to move on to something else. Some possibilities for the post-listening stage include noticing new words and phrases that came up in the listening, recalling and reconstructing information from the listening, and practicing new words and phrases from the listening in speaking or writing.

This time around, I’m using a track from ELLLO. The dialogue is titled “Change of Clothes.”

 

  1. Reviewing The Transcript – Provide each student with a copy of the transcript. Tell the class to underline any sections of the transcript that they think they understand, but have some uncertainty about. Also, instruct them to circle any sections which they don’t understand at all. Put them in groups of 4 to discuss the parts they underlined and circled. Finally, ask students to write on the board any phrases or sentences they still can’t understand. Go over these with the class.
